Groundhog Day Matching Game for Toddlers

There are a lot of fun holidays in winter, which is probably why I’ve neglected Groundhog Day so far. The good thing about blogging continuously for years is that whatever I miss out on one year (or even several years), I can make up for in a new year 🙂

But in order to catch up, I’ve decided to make it a series, and this is the first day of the 7 Days of Groundhog Day Printables 🙂 {You can sign up for a reminder whenever I post a new printable here.}

This Groundhog Day Matching Game for Toddlers is my 2-year-old’s favorite right now {even though he insists on calling the groundhog “bear”, no matter how many times I explain about groundhogs 😉 }.

{Don’t care about groundhogs? You may prefer Valentine’s Day printables!}

Matching games are my 2-year-old's favorite! Most recently, he's had fun with this simple cute Groundhog Day Matching Game for Toddlers! Match groundhogs in different poses and practice visual discrimination, visual scanning, and 1:1 correspondence. Or extend the activity with the shadow matching version!

What’s in the printable PDF file?

This printable game is set up like most of my matching games for toddlers: There are six different images (a groundhog in an “I love Spring” t-shirt, a groundhog with his shadow, a groundhog with a bowtie, a groundhog peeking out of its hole, a dancing groundhog, and a groundhog wearing a winter hat, gloves, and a scarf), and there’s a colored version and one in black and white.

You can either print two copies of one page or one copy of each for a bigger challenge. Cut one or both pages apart at the black lines and let the matching begin! Leaving one page intact makes it easier to find the correct match. Don’t forget to talk about groundhogs, Groundhog Day, and all of the details in the image to build knowledge and vocabulary.
